Unions Stand United at CX Bargaining
­
On Thursday February 16, 2017, your CX Bargaining Team met with the University to continue contract negotiations.
 
We were joined at the table by leaders of the other major UC Unions – UPTE, AFSCME, and UAW – who all voiced their support for the Teamsters and against the University’s proposed 2016 pension tier.  The Unions joined together to oppose the University’s attempts to move workers from the secure defined benefit pension into a risky, expensive 401(k)-style plan that does not provide a guaranteed retirement.   
 
The Local 2010 team countered the UC’s previous wage proposal:
 
Year UC Teamsters
2016* 3% ATB + $400 Lump Sum 5% ATB + $1,200 Lump Sum
2017 1% ATB + 1 "Merit" Based Step 3% ATB + 1 Guaranteed Step
2018 3% ATB + $400 Lump Sum 3% ATB + 1 Guaranteed Step
2019 1% ATB + 1 "Merit" Based Step 3% ATB + 1 Guaranteed Step
2020 3% ATB + $400 Lump Sum 3% ATB + 1 Guaranteed Step
2021 1% ATB + 1 "Merit" Based Step 3% ATB + 1 Guaranteed Step
*Effective Date - UC: upon ratification, Teamsters: Dec. 1, 2016

We have made progress on several non-economic issues, including the rights of Union members to engage in Union activity in the workplace.
This bargaining session came just days after leaders of all UC Unions went to Sacramento and jointly lobbied the Legislature against the UC retirement scheme.  Legislators are extremely concerned about the fact that the University has reneged on its promise to bargain with the Unions regarding the pension plan, and is now trying to force it on represented workers.  Legislators are also unhappy that the University will waste about $500 million on its new pension scheme, while UC is raising tuition and requesting more funding from the state.

The parties are working to set dates for further negotiations. 
 
We must continue to stand together as Teamsters and fight for fair wages and a decent retirement.  Contact your Union Representative or come to the next Union meeting to get involved!
